About Hina Luna

Hina Luna is a creative inquiry into bridging the connections between body, altar, and home; a devotion to and honoring of simple pleasures, personal talismans, kitchen table culture, and ancestral connection.


Conceptual inspiration

Behind the name The moon is my steady muse and the namesake of this heart-work. ‘Hina’ honors the moon deity of the place I call my home in Hawai’i and her plant body representations, and ‘Luna’ is a nod to the moon spirit of my own Italian ancestry. The name itself is a bridge between homes. I find inspiration in the moon’s gentle, quiet power; a light in the darkness; ever-evolving through its phases; in communion with the waters of both earth and body.

Working concepts Through symbology, I explore what it means to consider the body as both a home for spirit and an altar to be tended to for the sake of our selves and honoring our ancestors. My intention is to cultivate a relationship with the world around us — the seen and the unseen — and to create spaces and experiences that offer beauty in a way that feels like visual relief and inspires connection.

Seasonal shop

Hina Luna’s shop is currently operating on a seasonal basis, featuring both studio made and curated offerings to the altar of your spirit, body, and home.  Items that are talismans and tools to be interacted with daily that celebrate simple pleasures, quality craftsmanship, a life lived slowly and intentionally, and honoring our ancestors by caring for ourselves.

All items are created or curated with the intention to honor both people and planet. Natural materials, ethical creation processes, and a balance of function and form are the foundation of this creative endeavor. 

Studio offerings

Original works from the Hina Luna home studio have included plant dyed and block printed altar cloths, aprons, linen pillowcases, table and kitchen linens, annual moon calendars, zines, and the occasional wearable garments.

New releases are announced via newsletter. Moon Circle mailing list subscribers will be notified first. Follow on Instagram for previews leading up to releases.

People and Planet

With consideration of our earth, orders are lovingly packaged and shipped in biodegradable, plastic-free, and reused materials that can quickly and safely reintegrate back into the earth.

Hina Luna embraces the slow movement and lives by the philosophy of having less, choosing better quality, and making things last. I believe these philosophies are easily practiced when we foster a connection to the tangible items we choose to surround ourselves with.

Where is Hina Luna based?

I create from my home studio on Hawai’i island. Hina Luna is currently online only.
